Dr. White now serves as one of the leaders on the Women’s Council at Texas Health Alliance, which helps physicians better serve our community for pregnancy and women’s health care.
Michael A. White, MD has been dedicated to providing excellent health care to his patients for more than 25 years. “I was inspired to become a physician by my desire to help people through medical illnesses, and I strive to improve their quality of life,” Dr. White says. “I was especially drawn to obstetrics and gynecology, as it is a field which provides a wide spectrum and diversity of challenges: combining fundamental primary care of medical disorders with surgical care and delivering new lives to families.” He also enjoys the long term continuity that the OBGYN field uniquely provides.
As the demand in the Keller/Fort Worth-Alliance area has grown Dr. White has found it necessary to adjust his office hours and hospitals he serves to follow the demand. Beginning in October, he will deliver only at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital, Alliance. The Keller office is 8 miles from the former Grapevine office. It is his desire to continue serving patients from Grapevine and the surrounding areas at the Keller or Alliance office. Appreciating your loyalty, he apologizes for any inconvenience the change in office schedules may cause. It is his desire to provide exemplary care at all times.
Knowing that it is crucial for his patients to be as informed as possible about their healthcare, Dr. White takes a personal approach with them and encourages family involvement. He understands the importance of the examination, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all aspects in women's health. Dr. White believes in treating each patient with respect and dignity and he listens closely to his patients’ concerns.
According to Dr. White, “I most enjoy the interaction of the privileged doctor/patient relationship and my ability to alter people’s paths in their medical health by reducing or removing disease and empowering the patient to improve their health and quality of life.”
Dr. White’s colleagues have recognized him as an outstanding physician in obstetrics and gynecology. In 2003, he was selected by his peers for inclusion in the Tarrant County's Top Doctors annual listing of the best physicians in the county. He was selected as “Best OB/GYN” in Keller by the readers of the Keller Citizen in 2011, 2010 and 2009. Dr. White’s Keller and Alliance offices serve the surrounding areas, such as Roanoke, Haslet, Watauga, Southlake, Fort Worth, Saginaw, Westlake and many more.
Virtually all of Dr. White’s gynecologic surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, focusing on minimally invasive techniques. Outpatient procedures include endometrial ablations and Essure (sterilization). Most of these can even be performed in an office setting for the patient’s convenience at our Alliance office. For the past several years, Dr. White has performed hysterectomies laparoscopically with the DaVinci Robotic System, providing patients with less postoperative pain and easier recovery.
Dr. White has been married to his high school sweetheart, Carol, for over 35 years. They have three children, the eldest of whom, Chris, is a surgical resident at UT Southwestern and is pursuing a subspecialty in colorectal surgery. He is following his father’s footsteps into the medical field. Chris and his wife, Sarah (who is an OBGYN) have a son named Jacob. Dr. White loves spending time with his grandson. Their daughter, Lauren, graduated in 2016 with her Masters in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. Their youngest son, Dimitri, is attending college and joined the U.S. Marine Corps. When Dr. White has some free time, he enjoys outdoor lake activities, skiing, boating and traveling with his family. He likes exercising and early morning runs with his running buddy, a black Labrador named Abby.
